Knights of Columbus Charity Dinner



The Kentucky Derby Festival recognizes the importance of public health and safety – it is always the Derby Festival’s top priority and we appreciate everything that is being done for all of us. We want to do our part as well, and with an abundance of caution, have decided to postpone the 2020 Kentucky Derby Festival until later in the year.

The schedule may look a little different as we move things into a new timeframe, but there will be a Thunder Over Louisville, a miniMarathon, a Pegasus Parade, and many other events in between. As you can imagine, there are a lot of moving parts, and once we get all the details finalized, we will release a new schedule.




Dinner tickets are $50.

What’s better than enjoying a festive evening and raising money for a good cause at the same time? That’s the idea behind the Derby Festival Knights of Columbus Charity Dinner.

This annual event helps the Knights of Columbus raise money to improve the lives and opportunities of the mentally handicapped.

The presentation of the Dean Eagle Memorial Award is one of the annual highlights of the event. This award is presented to a person who has excelled in the promotion and coverage of the Thoroughbred racing industry. Special guests will include the 2020 Kentucky Derby Festival Queen and Court.

Coordinated by: Bishop Spalding Council of the Knights of Columbus

November 9 - December 7
